Rated 5 out of 5 by Javar Don't often pay LL Bean prices but very Glad I did
Checked out all the major brands LL Bean fit the best.No support humps sticking up in the wrong place. Picked them Up in Free Port thinking I could always send them back. I think the secret to the fit was the salesman's advice that there should a fingers distance between the toe and the shoe. They have become my go to shoe. I have bad knees; these shoes offer shock absorption and stability from foot twisting. Slightly heavy, there is a lot of shoe here. But like I said your foot is firmly planted. Heel wear is not a problem as I thought there might be either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Odin1014 New Balance 969
The shoe is nice looking and comfortable but it does run small. I have taken a size 11 for 45 years and I had to return both the size 11 and a replacement pair that was a11 1/2. Finally went with a size 12 and am very satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shoenofit Great shoe but they don't fit
Shoes are greatmade well but don't fit. I ordered 1/2 size larger as directed, they didn't fit. Reordered 1size larger didn't fit again. I didn't reorder again I din't want to order 1 1/2 - 2 sizes larger since I don't know if they will fit.
I never have a problem ordering shoes I order my size and they fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by envengineer Will not fit, save your money and time.
Very poor for supposedly top of the line New Balance walking shoe. Ordered size 11 2E, actual size is about 9 C. Will not fit even when you follow ordering instructions to order 1/2 size larger than normal shoe size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bogalusabuddy walking shoes are not wide
They are suppose to be wide double EE and they say they are but they are not even close. I was buying replacements but what I got was totally different from my original shoes. which I love. But these I have had to do a lot of brake in. They are way narrow should not be called a walking shoe!

This was the worst purchase I have made from LL Bean in 40 years. It appears the quality control people failed to do their job when this product arrived at LL Bean. The shoes were too small and too narrow for the size indicated. This should have been discovered. It also appears New Balance didn't have any quality control wherever the shoes were manufactured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RadioWriter SMALL!
As others have noted, these shoes are extremely small! I ordered a half-size larger than normal and could not get my feet in them I returned then and got a full two sizes larger than I normally wear and they fit well.
But honestly, two sizes larger than normal? This company needs to revamp their sizing.
Otherwise, great shoe: comfortable and lightweight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by longtimecustomeralso Tried 4 sizes before they fit
The shoes are great once I got the correct size. Started by ordering size 11 and kept returning them until I had a size 13 that fit correctly.
